Most Unique Singing Voice
« see full list
His voice was the most unique, beautiful, soulful voice ever. I have never listened to another singer who has touched my very being the same way he has. I am so thankful I had the chance to know him through his music but so sad it was his demons that brought out that surreal beautiful voice that would reach down and touch your soul. Absolute best voice ever.
Layne staley is by far the most unique, emotional, amazing voice I have ever heard every word this guy sings the listener can feel the emotion this guy had and feel the pain he went through, with his struggles he was so broken and yet had such a strong voice! He could sing really low and then sing really high as well one of the best vocalist as far as range goes. Every time he pick up a microphone you knew it was him singing. He was very underraged and looked over and deserves to be at least in the top 3 in this list!
Very recognizable vocalist. You couldn't resist turning up the radio even if you tried. Just the urgency combined with the raw emotions in his voice alone made you stop and listen to what he was singing. He gave everything his all in his performances. R.I.P. layne Thomas Staley, from my side of Washington to yours.
Layne came on the scene crafting dense, moody alternative metal fueled by sinisterly nasal vocals and mesmerizing harmonies. In my opinion, Staley was the groups centerpiece & nothing could be more evident than w/the vocals on the LIVE album of LOVE, HATE, LOVE, & his vocals in Stay Away! He gives me, what I like to call "soul goose bumps" every time I hear his voice, but in those 2 songs, no one could ever compete!
There's a reason why there are copycats of Kurt Cobain and Eddie Vedder who sounds kind alike to them but even though many bands are rip-offs of AIC there is no one who's even sounds slightly alike Layne even though they are trying very hard. Layne's voice is without a doubt the most unique I've ever heard.
Layne is the best, he has a voice which fulfill my soul, pure emotion that will never be forgotten. He has a distinct and unimaginable beauty.
Layne, we love you and I know your talent will never be unnoticed, you are the best, despite of it all, rest in peace sweet angel.
Layne has the most unique, and beautiful voice of anyone! His singing style has been copied by so many bands now. When you hear Layne you know it, he is so recognizable. Layne's voice is the only one I could never get tired of listening to. He was the greatest talent, and greatest loss in music history...
Layne Staley had one of the greatest voices in music. It is a shame that he is not as well known as other singers, because his voice had so much passion and soul. When he got up to that microphone NO ONE could touch him. My favorite singer and my greatest inspiration will always be Layne Staley. RIP Layne
I like Sarah Brightman, but this site is so incredibly biased towards her. What is the deal? Her voice is not that "unique. " Staley is recognized instantly.
There is only one Layne Staley.
NO ONE, sounds like him, and unlike half the other vocalists on this list, he can ACTUALLY sing (sorry kurt cobain didn't sing that good and serj tankian is lame)
He's singing voice was definitely unique I would know that singing voice if it was standing before me today. One day soon I hope to see his beautiful blue eyes again.
I've never even heard of most of the people on this list, all I know is that Layne Staley has the greatest voice I've ever heard and no one can possibly re create it, that is unique so he should be 1
Definitely number one. Vocal ranges were absolutely brilliant! Layne Staley is by far my favorite singer of all time. Such a shame he passed...
He was simply awesome. His voice is the best I've ever heard. I always Had Nirvana as my favorite band but I can't disagree that layne had a better voice than Kurt did.
The best singer for grunge. No one in this world actually hates him sing. The world is still crying for him all hail king layne
Layne had a very unique singing voice, the best in my opinion. It as unique as Ozzy Osbourne, but sounds more technically advanced.
Layne has the "voice of an angry angel"
If my life were made into a movie, with a voice over... I would wish Layne's voice to provide that sound. He spoke/sang to my mind, heart, & soul.
Umm this list is ridiculous, this man sounds like a combination of Axl Rose and Kurt Cobain, absolutely mindblowing, top ten at least people!
Definitely layne staley and serj tankian but serj is the best he could do anything rock rap country metal even opera I mean he's amazing
There are no words that can explain this mans vocal talents.. Just listen and prepare to be rocked!
Layne's voice is by far the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. It is like no others. He is gone, but his voice will remain forever!
Gets my vote for most unique b/c no other voice has captured my complete attention for so long, and spoke so clearly to my soul
not an opinion, FACT, well for anyone who can hear
